Jose Mourinho Furious With Paul Pogba's Agent
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is believed to be furious with superstar Paul Pogba's agent after the midfielder was linked with switches to FC Barcelona and Juventus.
The 25-year-old Frenchman has been linked with a move away from United throughout the transfer window, which Mourinho feels is because of one man.
According to The Times, the Portuguese boss is upset with agent Mino Raiola's attempts to get Pogba out of Manchester in this window.
In recent weeks, a number of reports suggested that Pogba had agreed terms with both Barca and Juve ahead of potential moves.
Mourinho is said to believe Raiola is seeking a pay day following the midfielder's excellent displays in France's 2018 FIFA World Cup-winning campaign.
The Portuguese has since claimed that Pogba is happy at the Red Devils, although there have also been reports suggesting the Frenchman was upset with Mourinho over comments he made during the World Cup – despite Pogba playing a massive role in France lifting the trophy, the coach seemed reluctant to praise the player at the time.
The former Juventus midfielder has won two trophies since his return to United in 2016, but endured a difficult 2017/18 campaign.
Do you think Pogba will be an important figure for United in 2018/19? Let us know in the comments section below.
